Opening the KIOSH 2019 exhibition, B. Saparbayev, Minister of Labor and Social Protection of the Population of the Republic of Kazakhstan, noted that the exhibition strengthens business and professional ties between representatives of government agencies, manufacturers and suppliers of personal and collective protection.«It is proved that the provision of workers with personal protective equipment directly affects the level of industrial injuries».
«Over the past five years, the number of injured people at work has decreased by 22%, the number of fatalities reduced by 35%. Despite the decrease in the level of injuries, every year more than one thousand five hundred (1.5 thousand) workers are injured at work and, unfortunately, more than two hundred (220) people die».
After getting familiar with the exposition of the exhibition, the KIOSH 2019 conference on labor protection and industrial safety started its work. Traditionally, the KIOSH conference began with a minute of silence in memory of production workers who died at workplace.
In his speech, the Minister of Labor and Social Protection of the Republic of Kazakhstan, B. Saparbayev informed that measures to reduce industrial injuries are reflected in the draft of Law on Labor and the Road Map to reduce industrial injuries and workplaces with harmful working conditions in the Republic of Kazakhstan in 2019-2023 years. «Satisfying the unmet need could reduce the accident frequency rate to 0.22 per 1000 people, lowering the proportion of workers employed in hazardous working conditions to 20%.».
